A brief message fromThe Back Country Horsemen of Washington (BCHW)

  If you ride on Washington's public trails, there is only one organization that supports your right to ride: The Back Country Horsemen of Washington (BCHW). BCHW works with legislators, public land managers, private landowners and anyone else who influences how your trails are used and maintained. We also operate a Leave No Trace education program to help stock users understand how to use the environment responsibly, and safety programs to protect stock users and others who use the trails. Our mission can be summed up simply: to keep trails open to stock use on public lands. We also need your help. BCHW is a non-profit (501-c3) organization that relies on members like you to help with trail maintenance projects, as well as our famous potlucks and Dutch oven cooking events. Our 34 chapters across the state have regular meetings, where we share equine health and training tips, schedule rides for enjoyment and education, and coordinate our efforts to keep those trails open. We socialize, but we are constantly working on keeping those trails open. And don’t forget those Dutch oven meals! We look forward to hearing from you…. Top
